Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in Tampa FL
There is little protecting a pedestrian from the full impact of a serious collision. Each year, thousands of pedestrians are killed in auto accidents in the United States, and statistics show that those traveling on foot are nearly 1.5 times more likely to suffer fatal injuries in the event of a crash. Florida is one of the most dangerous states for pedestrians due to the fact that it is among five states accounting for roughly 47% of pedestrian deaths nationwide.
